    Originally my plans was to go on the Bike North "Tour de Cowra" bike event.

    Not going ahead now.
    :(

    We are allowed to do bike/(unicycling) riding though, so it might be a case of doing some local "not particularly social" rides....

    Definitely not going cruising (on a cruise ship) anytime soon either.

    "When"..........
    Based on what I have seen of people grouping at pedestrian crossings, cafe's and parks o_O

    As per the title, the usual, at home preferably by the pool, eating WAY too much "ordinary" chocolate (at least now I have an excuse for NOT going to the gym !!!! )

    Not going to the Costa Brava. Not leaving my flat.
    Even if you're allowed to do something, don't do it, dont go anywhere, stay at home.

    Crazy! The very place where one can self isolate way out in the bush.
    Yet we are still allowed to brush shoulders in the ailes at coles/woolies???
    This is stupid policy IMO.

    I wont be going to the footy, the doncaster handicap races etc etc.

    Not going on a four-night road trip with UK friends out to Broken Hill and back. As I can afford to, I'm minded to tell the hotels to cancel the bookings and keep the money.

    Allowing people to travel around on holidays, including national parks, would be crazy. Major cause of spread.
    Supermarkets easily controlled. Limit number of people inside to 10-20, plenty of space. That's what they do here, works well.

    I can get in my car, drive to gates of national park. Walk in from there. Minimal people no need to go anywhere near anyone.

    People are still coming into this country and not being tested just let go their way and made to promise to isolate!

    Yeah, I figure this must be it. Preventing people from getting together to go walking, visiting small communities and spreading there along the way. Also preserving resources from having to go and rescue people who injure themselves/become unwell whilst out bush. In Tassie it's hard, as so many of our national parks are really remote, and as @Phar Lap says, one can just drive there and drive back, but I guess we have to account for all the people who aren't that sensible...

    The problem is you won’t be the only one doing this!

    In the UK restrictions, car parks in the Lake District and the Brecon Beacons were packed and locals were furious. The Isle of Skye and the Scottish highlands were over-run with people who thought they were heading “somewhere remote”. Hence the need for a more strict lockdown.

    Just stay home. It’s not forever - but the sooner we all self-isolate As much as possible the sooner the restrictions will ease.

    Sheer stupidity. The face value effect is minimal however when you consider that you are in an isolated location, the only ways out are on foot or by helicopter evacuation. Should you become ill, there's always the shortcut to the bottom :oops:. Hence, no access to remote places.

    The Great Lakes are always like this. I remember laughing at the number of people "getting away from it all" as you could see from the road a mass of them moving across the higher up walking trails ... looked like really long caterpillars

    My accountant is nagging me to get my tax returns in. In other news, my office is a lot cleaner than it was last week. #procrastination

    Had planned originally to have a family get together with my 2 daughters and their husbands, my son and his wife and my 2 grandsons. Obviously this can't go ahead.
    Maybe Xmas???:eek:
    Missing knocking around with my grandsons, bigtime!:(:(
